Instructions on sowing and growing your poppy seeds
Sow your Centenary Poppy Seeds outdoors where they are to grow. Prepare the ground well and rake to a fine tilth before sowing. Sow 1.5mm deep, in rows 30cm apart.
When large enough to handle, thin seedlings out to 15-23cm apart.
Please note: guidance from the Department of Environment, Food and Rural Affairs states that that poppy seeds should not be used near agricultural areas or sites of scientific interest. They are for use on an individuals' own land only.
Seeds for Schools
The Legion is supplying free poppy seeds to all schools in the UK thanks to a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund. The funding also provides for 500 'Remembrance Ambassadors' to be trained and to help young people understand the significance of the poppy.
